This is what it takes to get the red carpet look, try all or some of these hints and tips to get yourself ready perfectly!
My tip is to get all the little jobs done ahead of time (day before or a few days is enough depending on your schedule and how long the finished article will last for):
Nails. If you know what you are wearing then choose something that really finishes off the look either by adding a pop of colour, the wow factor or alternatively something neutral … I am a big fan of white in any season because it always looks clean and well manicured with most outfits, adding a little bling as seen here in a coordinating shade to catch the light, will give the finished product a little zsuzh!
Waxing, Shaving, Hair removal depending on regrowth do it as close to the event as possible without needing to attend to it all on the day.
Teeth Whitening again can be done a day before, good home whitening kits can be bought from vendors of Crestwhite 3d strips, choose one that suits your needs e.g. sensitive or gentle routine. I advocate maintenance with these products and perhaps twice a year use the glamorous luxe version which is a 7 or 14 day regimen to overhaul your gnashers! try eBay, Amazon and price comparison websites for the best deals… I recommend
Spray Tanning will impart a healthy radiance to your outfit and make you feel well! Choose an organic product that doesn’t smell for days! I am a fan of the Sienna Tan.
Now with the basics, and let’s face it, time consuming small jobs out of the way, you are free to concentrate on the day to shower, moisturize, hair-do, dress, and make up!
Another tip is to get your hair done prior to the event, and then just arrange for an updo on the day (earlier rather than later), if you are leaving it styled then even better! Additional benefit of having your hair done a day before is that it will settle and gain volume in most cases.
This is the Kink Salon, if you are lucky enough to be able to get to North London, and to get an appointment with them it is a MUST! Each team member is talented, kind, friendly and capable of transforming your tresses the way you want it. Having tried and tested a number of hairdressers I can say with all confidence that this is hair-topia! They train and learn constantly and many a time I have seen them self teaching the art of the latest trend when they have a spare moment. Apart from which #TeamCleo a most talented sibling management/stylist duo can provide valuable insight and advice for anything from the best film to watch, to window cleaners and everything in between and that is a promise…I often arrive for my appointments armed with a to-do list which will usually be executed by the time I leave! Hasten down there, you won’t be disappointed.
Now we are left to the basics of getting ready on the day! Take your time, so you don’t end up hot and bothered, bath, moisturize, pamper and preen with smelly stuff to feel and look glamorous and well rested.
Then relax and put on a face mask and eye patches to rejuvenate your cleansed skin for an at home facial that will take years off you and leave you glowing! I am a big fan of Diamond Blend products that harness the goodness of marine miracle and infuse your skin with beneficial properties of diamonds leaving you with traces of diamond dust for that extra impact at an affordable pricepoint.
Getting dressed is usually my next stop, as I don’t like getting hot and flustered once I am made up! If you are anything like me however well prepared you are or think you are, it doesn’t necessarily flow on the day, so allow loads of time! Remember to cover yourself with something so that the makeup spillages don’t land on your clothing. My top tip here is to stick to a basic makeup routine (of which there are many tutorials here on my site) build up the colour as you go, a smokey eye is always good on these occasions and so quick and easy to do and a pop of colour on the lips.
Time to go and enjoy your night!
